  3. Well, you guys are awesome at 1 thing. Gang up on the poster and make them feel small, call them names and make them stop posting. Problem solved. Thanks BuzzTV! Your support from the "official forum" speak volumes about your company. If I had any idea I would be dealing with this type of help with the system, I never would have purchased the product. Buyer beware.

  4. Open Single EPG On a channel with catch-up When you browse Catch-up There will be a color button option that says Download on the bottom left. If its not there, then your server doesn't allow downloads of catch-up. Make sure you have download storage setup in PVR options menu as well. It only works to USB/SD or Internal Hard Drive. We added this feature in early 5.0.7xx versions.

  6. Yes this is how its designed now Its to ensure recordings work even when the box is in Standby. This also works on the HD5. However.... On the X5 and U5 If you have it set to Shutdown for Power Off And you have scheduled recordings, the box will wake up to do those recordings It wakes up 2 minutes before the scheduled recording, as those models have an RTC battery inside them The 4500s and 4900s also have the RTC Battery in them for this same feature.

  12. Am I a dev for Buzz, no. But I have done over 30 years of dev on various realtime platforms and have done a lot of h/w engineering. If you post in an open forum, expect replies from everyone. It' usually a benefit, not a negative. You don't want people's input or recommendations, then just deal with private messages with whoever you want, why post in an open forum. You may be a network admin, but seem to have no concept about hardware design. Even though the network port is a 10/100, it does not mean that it can reach it's full potential. All of these connections to the outside world, need to connect to the CPU, and it all depends on what communication lanes they are using or sharing with other devices. The I/O on the Gen2 chips was not stellar (this was the biggest issue). IF I recall everything shared a single PCIe lane. Reason I also asked you to check the WiFi is because there were MANY reports that the 5Ghz band on most of the S905X2 based boxes (not only Buzz), was the only way to achieve around 90Mbps. Probably due to the way it was connected internally. On the driver point of view, you are at the mercy of amlogic. And much of it's SDK was in binary blobs only, so you don't have the sources to all of it. Making it very difficult to modify built in features like ethernet drivers. You say you have an ASUS router. If you do, and being a network admin, you should be able to easily enable and then ssh or telnet into the router and check from the command line if the connection is half or full duplex. This is one of the advantages of most asus routers. simple enough for the average home user, yet many advanced features accessible from the command line for more advanced users.

  16. It tries to keep recording for 2 minutes if a stream buffers or becomes corrupted The issue with most servers is they use Dynamic URLs, so if the stream buffers or disconnects on the server side for more than 2 minutes. When it fixes itself, it creates a new Dynamic url, therefore the recording cannot continue and finishes.

  17. Yes basically These are the plans moving forward 1. New FW OTAs will be sent to all Android 9 Models on Buzz 4 Existing users on Buzz 4 Can stay there If they choose to go to buzz 5 they can with 2015 We have updated the 2015 method on this Buzz 4 FW Update, to now automatically retrieve the latest Beta Update. There won't be anymore waiting around for your MAC to be added. You will just need to be running the newest version of FW we send out for Buzz 4. We made the decision to have Public users stay on Buzz 4, as there are just way too many changes to Buzz 5. So not all users will like these changes. So now they will have the option to move to Buzz 5 on their own and it will be a much easier process. 2. All Android 9 Models will have a newer Buzz 5 FW Update available for it, which will include version 5.0.766 or newer + FW Changes and Fixes. 3. XRS 4900s which are currently running Buzz 5, will get a New Public OTA of Buzz 5 FW, which will include version 5.0.766 or newer + FW Changes and Fixes 4. All new Android 9 boxes sold Will automatically get Buzz 5 FW + App. We will announce when this starts to happen. All 4 things above are scheduled to happen over the next 1-3 weeks.

  19. I don't understand the big deal in providing your MAC address to the same people who made that box and are creating software for it. You know they already have your MAC address right? They're just asking you for it to differentiate you from the non-beta boxes to enroll you in the beta program. If they really want to steal your data they wouldn't need your MAC address. All they would need to do is modify the firmware with a backdoor, push that release to all the boxes, and call it a day. You do realize that these android boxes already have telemetry that call home for all sorts of services. Do you have YouTube or any other apps on the box? If you want to retain data privacy you should throw your android buzz box in the trash can and buy an antenna.

  23. It was an easy fix, I used my own card and it took a few minutes. I wasn't crazy about having to reinstall everything on the box but that's life. Took me 20 minutes to put everything back on the box. Not the end of the world, I'm not a techie and this was very easy. I was upset too that my box wasn't updating but within a couple hours of my post asking when it would be fixed, I got the fix sent to me and was up and running less than an hour later. I really can't ask for more than that. Give the fix a try, I think you'll be happy with it.

  25. @dikuser I don't know why you're bringing up my sister Karen. She has nothing to do with buzz. Grow up, shut up and keep things on topic instead of insulting people (my sister). If you have nothing intelligent to say and you don't, than just zip it. You are single handedly wrecking this forum.

  26. Well, 1st of all, CS never offered me a replacement. I was given the choice to send it back or get the sd card and do it myself. Nothing else. "What's the problem if I get a replacement box"? Well, I would be without a device to watch TV. So how fast do you think it will be to send it out and get it back? Mind you, no TV for that long. How to contact them? Well, surely Buzz knows who they shipped the boxes to. Maybe reach out to the mailing address. After all, these boxes will never update, and it shows as if it is. Many don't want the updates? Are you saying there is no reason to update my box? There are no changes in these updates to fix stuff? What about security patches? Nothing in the updates for that either? Don't update the box? Only happened a few........ Those poor "few" people have a box that will never update and show it is up-to-date. No problem.........A few dozen or 100's, does it really matter? Boxes are out there that will never update unless the consumer finds this site and thread to know their box is not up-to-date. Is that accurate? Oh, and my box is not returnable according to cs.

  27. If you are tech capable enough, then there is no point of going through the hassle of swapping out the box. It is longer for both Buzz and the End user. If user is completely tech zero, that is a different story. At least Buzz is not abandoning them (like I've seen many other companies do). And what would you recommend ? This is not a car, where I have a legal registry of all who purchased it, that I can send out a service bulletin. Many people don't even care about updates, and are happy with what they have. I have 2 xrs4900 boxes and I left one of them on firmware 4.0.xxx instead of upgrading to 5.0.xx branch (for over a year), simply because the "wife" - who is not tech savvy - was happy with the box as it is, and any changes were not often welcome by her. Should users experience an issue with their box, they would seek out help from customer support and would then be provided the required info. It is an unfortunate firmware glitch. It happens. I think Buzz has stepped up to the plate by fixing it, offering the files and instructions to those who can do it themselves, and offering an exchange to those who don't feel comfortable to do it themselves. Don't know what more you can expect from a $250 box. Not many companies step up to the plate like that. Actually Amazon was even worse when they got into an argument with google and pulled the play store from all of there devices a few years ago. Didn't all users pay to have a "true" android box with google services ? Oh, now without their consent, they found themselves with neutered devices. And took them ages to build up their "store".

  30. All other boxes yes. Not on the HD5. I noticed that a few weeks ago. The HD5 only has option for Shutdown and Restart for powerkey definitions. At this time, the HD5 only goes into a suspend mode if you turn off the TV (I tested it and about 3 or 4 seconds after TV is turned off, the white buzz logo goes dark. I never recall the HD5 having any other option. When you turn the TV back no, the HD5 comes on pretty instantaneously.

  32. Emporium I have a very good concept of Network design probably more than you ever will and this this exactly why I want an admin because I don't want to waste my time arguing with clueless people like you. Please stop spamming this thread and let the devs respond to the bug report. This was posted here as a bug report so please let the developers look into this issue and if the developers have any. Any I did SSH into the router and it is full duplex and it is still getting extremely slow speeds, The full potential is a lot more than what it is pulling now. The speeds are horrible that I am getting now from the Buzz TV XR 4000 box considering the network I am on which is a 1 Gbps connection and 1 Gbps across my whole network. This is a bug issue with the box so please let the Developers look into this. Again I am not on wireless this is a hard wired connection plugged right into the router itself. So wireless isn't even coming into play here. When you have a cat 6 cable plugged directly into the Buzz TV XR 4000 box the speeds should be way higher than what I was getting. This is most definitely a bug that the developers should be looking at.

  41. It is NOT up to buzz to correct poor coding on the Microsoft app. Why can other apps do it right ? Microsoft has NO clue how to code for Android. This was probably some coop students summer project, and was released with all the bugs it includes and I'd be surprised if they ever even release an update (maybe next summer when a new coop continues the project). Has nothing to do with Buzz. It is Microsoft who needs to understand the various flavours of Android (phones, tablets, tv boxes, and even Native AndroidTV boxes), with various input options (touch, remotes, mouse/keyboard, pens, etc..), and code for all varieties. IPTV Smarters is an example of one app that started life without taking that into account. Was geared for touch only and half the options were not accessible by basic remote initially. Now, many revisions later, it has come a long way. Not my favorite UI, but it now at least works as expected regardless if you have it on your phone, tablet or TV box. Glad your issue is "resolved", but this was NOT a buzz issue.

  42. If you are using an optical cable, I am assuming you are NOT using an eARC HDMI port from your TV. And you have been talking about Atmos all this time, but with optical, that is not an option as far as I know. Straight from the Sonos Arc page in the FAQ section: But, as you said, it is case closed, so one more thread we can close. If the 4900 works for you, then great.

  47. You mention you are using VLC, I am assuming when you say it is "enabled" you mean you have enabled "Digital audio output (passthrough)" is also enabled on VLC ? Doesn't take much for ATMOS to not work. Actually we say that ATMOS is supported passthrough only. Well this pretty much removes netflix from the list of apps which will ever be able to play ATMOS on "most" android boxes (with few exceptions. Netflix for some dumb reason has decided that it "requires that playback devices be capable of decoding Dolby Atmos natively, instead of simply being able to pass through Dolby Atmos to an Atmos-capable soundbar or A/V receiver.". There is a nice article on digitaltrends, which gives a nice details explanation and examples on what is needed, and when Atmos can fail (which in some cases is quite unexpected). https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/dolby-atmos-sound/ What is your setup ? TV, soundbar, receiver, etc. ? How are you sending your stream to your TV ? Are you going from buzz->TV->audio equipment ? of buzz->audio equipment-> passthrough to TV ? TV have HDMI ARC or eARC ? There are compatibility issues in some situations (read the HDMI section in the article above.
